Flood Awareness Map
It is important to understand the likelihood of flooding in your local area. This will help you prepare to reduce the impact of flooding on your home or business.
Brisbane City Council's Flood Awareness Map is for general awareness about the possibility of flooding in your local area. It also provides historic flooding information and information on different sources of flooding.
The flood information provided in the Flood Awareness Map is sourced from flood studies and models endorsed by Council.
The Flood Awareness Map was updated in March 2020 to include the latest amendment to the Brisbane River Catchment Flood Study and the latest data for Cubberla Creek, Wolston Creek and Cabbage Tree Creek.
Council has created simple guides to help you to prepare for flooding in Brisbane. These guides aim to help you minimise the impact of flooding to your home, property or business.
